Matthew Bernius’ research focuses on studying how new media tools alter the way groups communicate, and, in turn, how those changes affect the evolution of said tools. In addition to his role as a co-director and researcher at the Open Publishing Lab at the Rochester Institute of Technology, Matthew is pursuing a dual PhD at Cornell University in anthropology and information systems. Prior starting his PhD, Matthew was a visiting professor at RIT’s School of Print Media. He completed a Masters in the Social Sciences at the University of Chicago. Before that, Matthew spent eight years in a variety of internet production, community management, and content strategy roles at Eastman Kodak’s kodak.com, during which time he earned one patent.
In addition to his work with the OPL, he is member of RIT’s Lab for Social Computing, a cross disciplinary center focusing on the use of computing tools to facilitate these social and collaborative interactions.
